CNX Resources (CNX) to Report Q4 Earnings: What's in Store?

Read MoreHide Full Article

CNX Resources Corporation (CNX - Free Report) is scheduled to release fourth-quarter 2019 earnings on Jan 30, 2020, before the market opens. This exploration and production company delivered a positive earnings surprise of 33.3% in the last reported quarter.

Factors to Consider

CNX Resources brought in-line 24 wells in the third quarter, with majority of them starting production during the latter part of the quarter. Fourth-quarter production is expected to have benefited from the same.

The Zacks Consensus Estimate for fourth-quarter gas sales volume is pegged at 141 billion cubic feet equivalent, indicating year-over-year growth of 3.7%.

Share repurchases and the resultant drop in shares outstanding are anticipated to have had a positive impact on fourth-quarter earnings.

However, ongoing decline in commodity prices may have had an adverse impact on earnings in the to-be-reported quarter.
